The Centers For Disease Control announced that they are now recommending that states offer the COVID-19 vaccination to anyone 65 and older and Chris-Mont EMA Deputy Director Kevin Schott says that’s what they’ll be doing.
The Christian County Health Department along with the Chris-Mont EMA will be holding a drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination clinic for those 65 and older on Tuesday, January 19th at the Christian County Fair Grounds from 9-3.
Schott anticipates getting approximately 300 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine each week. If you are interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine you need to go to the nearest Caseys General Store or download and print the necessary paperwork off of the Chris-Mont EMA’s or the Christian County Public Health Department Facebook Page and bring that filled out with you to the fair grounds.
It’s important that the documents are filled out before you arrive to the fair grounds to help keep things moving and Schott went on to say that when you arrive at the fair grounds, just follow the signs.
Schott went on to encourage everyone who is concerned about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine to reconsider because Schott says that there is no reason to be concerned about the vaccine.
